Smash Hit takes players on an exciting journey through a futuristic glass world. It offers a level of immersion that is rarely found with other iOS games; the graphic fidelity of this game compared to other iOS titles really does a lot to help players feel like they are part of the game. Visually, this game is one of the most impressive iOS titles out there. The futuristic worlds filled with 3D shapes, color gradients and foggy glass textures really impressed us. The game’s physics engine impressed us just as much. Everything in this game reacts to your specific interaction, so every single thing you do in the game does something to the level around you.
One of the things that takes this game to the next level is the way that you travel through 3D corridors with realistic glass shattering around you. It looks and feels real, and this sets the game apart from the endless amount of other runner games on the market today. It’s similar, but it’s different because you smash your way forward instead of dodging obstacles for the whole game; it’s a nice change of pace for people who are used to traditional runner games.
There are 11 uniquely designed worlds in this game, and the worlds include 50 rooms that players can smash their way through. Every world and room includes new obstacles for players to get around; there are spinning sheets of glass, walls, blocks and pendulums for you to get through, and as you advance through every level, you increase speed. When the game gets faster, it’s a fun challenge to smash the glass without depleting your collection of steel balls. Once you run out of balls, it’s game over, so you’ll have to smash the special pyramids and diamonds found in the level to replenish your collection.
This game also introduces an element of resource management. If you hit an obstacle, you automatically lose ten balls, so you need to use just enough balls to get through the level; you can’t smash everything in sight and expect to get very far.
Smash Hit sounds relatively simple, but the graphics are fleshed out to such a high degree that it really feels like you are really flying through these 3D environments. It’s like being in a futuristic world where you have to work out the trajectory of the steel balls that you are throwing. The main game is free, but you’ll need to make an in-app purchase of $1.99 if you want to unlock checkpoints that let you restart the game closer to where you died instead of the beginning. Smash Hit is true to its name; it’s a fun game that uses beautifully crafted levels and immersive controls to stand out among other similar games.
